Namummaa fi Wantoota Namummaa Qancarsan – Humanness and What Took It

September 12, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm AEST


Namummaa fi Wantoota Namummaa Qancarsan – Humanness and What Took It

A multilingual performance combining theatre, poetry, song and Oromo dance. Exploring what it means to be human in the presence of each other – those who elevate your humanity and those who deny it.

Dedicated to lifting up the diverse philosophies and stories that the Oromo worldview has to offer.

Soreti’s At Home Residency Showing will present a work-in-progress performance. A Q&A session will also take place as part of this showing.

What is Take Over!?

A unique partnership between Arts Centre Melbourne and Melbourne Fringe, this year’s program features 10 fearless and unique artistic explorations that will take shape in artists’ homes across Victoria in the lead up to their presentation at Melbourne Fringe in November 2020.

What are the At Home Residency Showings?

This an opportunity to connect with the Take Over! artists at the end of their at home residencies and get an insight into the creative process. We have not been explicit with artists about what this showing must be. Some may share a part of the work they are developing, others might want to talk to you about their ideas. Others might need you to participate in an activity. There might be talking, dancing, reading, debating, sharing, singing, laughing, crying or music. You may be a passive audience member or you may want to contribute.

There are many unknowns, but one thing is guaranteed, you will be sharing in a creative process with some of our most visionary and boundary pushing artists – and that’s a rare opportunity.
